Princess Beatrice gets married in a recycled wedding dress
The royal looked fairytale chic
Princess Beatrice has married her property tycoon partner Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in a private ceremony at The Royal Chapel of All Saints in Windsor.
The couple decided to proceed with a small intimate wedding after cancelling plans for a bigger celebration in May due to the ongoing Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic. In a statement, the palace said the wedding was held within English government guidelines.
Naturally all eyes were on the bride and what she chose to wear for her big day, and the 31-year-old didn’t disappoint, wearing a vintage Norman Hartnell gown and diamond fringe tiara, both loaned to her by the queen.
The ivory gown wasn’t originally designed as a wedding dress, but the bride added organza puff sleeves and a few small glam touches for her big day.
Made from Peau De Soie taffeta in shades of ivory and trimmed with ivory Duchess satin, the dress is encrusted with diamanté details and has a classic checkered bodice.
As for the show-stopping tiara, it’s the very same one the queen wore to marry Prince Philip in 1947.
Buckingham Palace has since released a few pics of the Royal Family celebrating the happy day, and they look like they’ve been plucked straight out of a storybook.
Just to clarify, we know this special day wasn’t all about a dress, and we wish the happy couple all the best for their exciting future together!
